Sundial   House – An  Arts & Crafts Period Masterpiece

Friday 4th – Monday 7th November (3 Nights)
Only 8 Places Available

Sundial House is quite simply one of the most stunning houses I have ever seen or had the pleasure of staying in.

It’s not Regency (there are very few of those in Lyme that are suitable for our purposes).

It is, however, one of the most interesting pieces of architecture – designed by Arnold Mitchell, an employee of George & Peto – the most famous UK Arts & Crafts firm. Arnold Mitchell built this in 1903 as a place to which to retire. For Mitchell, this house was a labour of love and that love is manifest in every aspect of this property. From the mullion windows constructed using the finest Ham Stone, to the  fat grinning sundial and edged with ebullient foliage curlicues. The Sundial’s motto reads ‘HORAS NON NUMERO NISI SERENAS’ which translates to ‘I do not count the hours except the bright ones’. Every hour spent in this house is radiant; the brightness of the sun & the golden stone from which the house is made radiates throughout.

Sundial House is located on the seafront at Lyme Regis. With its panoramic views, Sundial affords its visitors the most magnificent views of the Cobb & the rest of Lyme Bay- especially at sunrise when the south facing rooms over-brim with light & energy.
